    Welcome to RD! You're one of many NG refugees here :) I think the NG members and modders are slowly coming over here and uploading their stuff, as well, so the content should come back albeit slowly.

    OVH SAS is one of the world's largest hosts (about 260,000 sites as of March); a quick search provides names, addresses, emails, corporate info, etc. for them. They would be the ones to ask, while certainly no private information would be divulged, they would know if nogripracing is still physically on their servers, was taken down by the owners, or is experiencing software/hardware difficulties.

    Though, as I view this, unsubstantiated information from an anonymous source.

    I have to inform/remember that RaceDepartment has halted the Downloads section before. Now, with Nogrip dead it's specially worrying.

    What exactly have we halted? :)

    We have switched once from vBulletin to Xenforo back in 2012 and the latter files were online for an extra period of time for people to download after properly announcing it way up front.

    RD has hosted the current resources ever since we moved towards this forum software ever since.

    Thanks! I am two months from retirement age and have been cynical since before I knew the word.

    So, just to be clear, if I have GTL, GTR2 files on my computer that I use for playing the games- I can copy/upload those files to this site so others can get access to them.

    I'd be grateful if someone could reupload Shift 2 files somewhere.

    I see content added without consent, will that be the norm ?


    jgf will be happy to know GTL, GTR2 and AMS Essentials will remain @ NoGrip p lol

    My permission extended to dissecting any mods anyway I wished to make multi combo mods as needed to work with generic mod enablers, not to post elsewhere.

    That was a huge concession from modders never seen before in any sim know of ?

    That effectively allowed any Essentials user to create make their own multi combo mods from any content anyway they like... as long as it remained in Essentials it's added to the official releases with credits

    If this system was implemented for all content it would be synced to Essentials content simply by modders testing and packing their mods to be 100% compatible to all others

    It's no skin of the noses of manual installers in fact they would have the benefit of more concise packages which would all be pathed from the root folder ;)

    For example, I remember there was a lot of BTB files to download in the old forum.

    Hello and welcome to the Race Department community.
    Since the master, @David Wright has posted the mod on here I expect more NG refugees to appear:)
    No doubt RD will quickly seem like home.
